The opening of the Armenian Genocide Library of the Armenian National Institute was held on April 5 in Washington. Although the books presented here do not reflect Armenian history and national character, but they provide detailed information on the Armenian Genocide, the most tragic event in the Armenian history.
Hayk Demoyan, Doctor of Historical Sciences and the director of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute also attended the library opening ceremony. He welcomed the opening of the library and the cooperation prospect with Armenia.
“The opening of the Armenian information center in Washington is a very important event. Firstly the establishment of such center in the US capital is already a serious achievement, and secondly this center will become a place for meetings and discussions, as well as a center for organizing coordinated activities. This is more than a library or information center,” Hayk Demoyan said.
Ruben Adalyan, the director of the Armenian National Institute noted that there are more than 5.000 publications in the library.
